Holiday Dining

I love bringing Christmas into my dining room.  
I have my holiday table set early this year just waiting to welcome my guests.
We are expecting 25 people for Christmas Eve, so I definitely needed to add the leaf to my dining table (plus a table in the kitchen and a kid's table).  Usually I do this with my husband, but since I couldn't wait until the weekend, I just did it myself.  These furniture gliders are a girl's best friend (if you've ever tried to move furniture without them you know what I mean). 
I started with a tablecloth and then layered a beautiful runner on top.
The runner is from Pottery Barn.
This was one of those purchases where I was just walking through the store and saw this and just had to have it.  Dangerous store for me.  
I also treated myself this year to these gorgeous plates from Pottery Barn.  I had a $25 off coupon they sent me and put it towards these plates.  
Each plate depicts one of the twelve days of Christmas.
Aren't they pretty?
This year I went a little more simple with my centerpiece.  

Here's another view...
As a final touch I added some bronze colored ornaments to a wire basket I had.
I have a few more things up my sleeve that I will add before Christmas Eve.
I will share them with you in the coming days.

I will be sharing this with No Minimalist Here.

Have a great weekend!

Beautiful table. I adore the table runner and dishes. Sounds like you will have a full house for dining, I'm sure they will appreciate all the beautiful place settings:)

What a good idea! I have some lovely Christmas plates that never see the light of day. Maybe I should follow your example and display them on the dining room table the entire month.

Thanks, Judy!


PS. Your table is simply elegant.

It's a good thing I'm not coming over for dinner because that table runner would be missing when I left! :-)I absolutely love it Judy and the plates are so fantastic too. Your dining room looks just beautiful!

Beautiful table! I love those 12 days of Christmas plates! I'll have to keep my fingers crossed that they'll still be available and marked down after Christmas. Love the runner, too! Thanks for sharing.
